Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

With a startling sensitivity for human tragedy and the ability of the heart to heal, Luanne Rice has written a moving account of one woman's internal journey in Follow the Stars Home. Married young to Tim McIntosh, a passionate and charismatic fisherman with a troubled heart, Dianne Robbins expects a future full of happiness, security, and love. But when tests reveal that their unborn baby is severely disabled, Tim sails off for calmer waters. Faced with the responsibilities of raising her daughter Julia, Dianne finds support in Tim's brother Alan and her own mother Lucinda.

A decade later, Dianne has mastered the demands of nursing Julia and swears her life is completely fulfilled by these tasks. When Alan introduces Amy Brooks, a young and troubled girl, into Dianne's life, Dianne finds her heart opening and stretching in new and positive ways. As her mother Lucinda explains, "The biggest mistake any of us can make is thinking that love is a feeling, an emotion. It's not that at all. It's an action." And Dianne struggles over the choice to love again.

Beautifully written with exquisite moments of tranquility, Follow the Stars Home describes the multiple ways that love can be acted. With a dash of suspense included, this novel will keep readers' fingers flipping through the pages as fast as they can. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding! 28. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Very few authors have the ability to touch you in a way you will never forget. Ms.Rice wields a ballbat and knocks you out cold! You don't have to be a fallen apple for this book to touch your heart. I am limited in my ability to describe how much I have enjoyed this book. I am sure I will be re-reading this book several times.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Luanne Rice is MAGIC..... 14. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I love romance novels but I hate tear-jerkers. I won't read a story if I know it's going to make me cry. Luanne Rice's previous book, Cloud Nine, was absolutely wonderful even though I cried buckets over it. (I didn't know that it was going to be that sad.) Even though this new book, Follow the Stars Home is magical, I must warn you that it also has a few tears. The characters - Alan, Dianne, Lucinda, Amy, Julia, Tim - are all so real, you don't want to let them go when the book is finished. The plot is pure soap opera: woman marries the "wrong" brother, bears a disabled child, husband leaves, while angelic doctor-brother lovingly and patiently waits in the wings to take over from irresponsible brother. Small scenes are full of love and caring; big dramatic scenes make you catch your breath in fear and apprehension. This book is far above a standard romance. Rice is truly gifted and talented and I will continue to read her with great joy, even knowing there's bound to be some teary moments.

5.0 von 5 Sternen rührend...schön. 10. Juli 2011
Format:Taschenbuch
Ein super Buch für alle Luanne Rice Fans... Sehr traurig/rührend/gefühlvoll/romantisch etc. Frau mit behindertem Kind. Vater abgehauen. Onkel seit 12 Jahren aus der Ferne in sie verliebt. Superliebe Oma. Liebes vernachlässigtes Nachbarmädchen. Eine Katze, ein Hund. Die wunderschöne Landschaft der Küste Neuenglands. Ich hatte das Buch in einem Tag durch. P.S. Evtl. Taschentuchbox zur Hand haben. :o)

3.0 von 5 Sternen A pleasant - enough read. 17. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This isn't a book I would race right out and buy, but it is an easy flowing story, and interesting enough to keep you turning pages. Dianne Robbins plays Super Mom, raising a hopelessly and terminal child, taking in a foster child, working and being a single mom. The grandmother is kind of cute, she lives with Dianne, and makes a few happy appearances. The love story behind all this is a little strange. Dianne and Alan only had one date, yet they seem to have always 'longed' for each other. Dianne married Alan's brother, who left her pregnant when he found out the baby was severely deformed. Luanne Rice tries to convince us that Dianne hates Alan because of what his brother did, but it doesn't wash real well, and the outcome is predictable. And throwing in the part where the deformed child has her say kind of puts a fakeness on the whole story. I hated the ending, I think you will too. I got the feeling that the author had to end it in a hurry and used whatever means available to do so. But it's okay. If you are bored and nothing else is around, you might like it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Heartfelt..... 17. April 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is not the typical novel that I normally read. I read it for something different than the everyday romance novel. I will most definately be looking for more books by Luanne Rice. This book was so real in the emotions that the characters portrayed. I truely felt for Dianne and Julia when I read how cruel Tim had been to them. I felt bad for Alan having to live and see the women that he loved week after week. I really felt for Amy, having a mother she loved, who didn't have enough self-worth to save herself to help the girl that she loved. I was happy to see that almost everyone got what made them happy in the end. Unlike others who read this book, I didn't shead a tear, but I felt the book was very heartfelt and the emotions real.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Preachy 6. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If this book tried any harder to say self-important, warm, pithy points, I was going to scream! The editor had to have been asleep at the wheel here. Some good editing, especially of the moralizing parts, could have saved this book. Alas, too late.

The biggest mistake any of us can make, Lucinda said, is thinking that love is a feeling, an emotion. It's not that at all. It's an action, a way of life. &quote;
